  • “Origins and Oscars and Other Such Stuff”

    “Origins and Oscars and Other Such Stuff”

    Sunday, March 3, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this service.

    Did you know that, among his many other “past lives,” our Senior Minister once penned movie reviews for newspapers? This morning, a week before the presentation of the Oscars (which are, as always, surrounded by controversy this year), Rev. Bill will take a look at the powerful and provocative movie “Origin” — and probably drop in some other cinematic commentary as well. (It would be wonderful if you went to see “Origin” before today’s service.)

    At 10:30 a.m., join us in the sanctuary or click this Zoom link.

    “What This Church Means to Me”

    Sunday, March 10, 2024 at 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton and Reid Hester lead this service

    Each spring, every member and friend of Heritage Church is asked to assess what this church means to them, to their families, to our community, and to our world. Our annual Stewardship Sunday kicks off a month of opportunities to make our commitment to HUUC manifest through pledges of financial support for the upcoming 2024-25 church year. Today we will reflect on and share what Heritage means to us, hear from our beloved choir, and prepare for a bright future together. Come join us!

    “Man-caves and She-sheds, Seeking Walden in Suburbia”

    Sunday, March 17, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev Mitra Jafarzadeh leads this service

    Finding space to deeply listen, to be observant, or just to be alone can be difficult in our techno-inundated era. During this service, Rev. Mitra Jafazadeh will lead us in exploring the ways we create and engage spaces of our own and the important work we do there.

    Rev. Mitra lives in Cincinnati with her husband, rapidly growing young adult children, dog, cats, and freshwater fish. After concluding a season of service to congregations, she began a new ministry when she founded Open Rose Coaching to offer life, end-of-life, and grief coaching.

    Laci Lee Adams leads this service.

    Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest! Are they shouts of joy? Pleas for salvation? A promise of revolution?

    Join us for this all-ages Palm Sunday service that explores the power and promise of hope. You won’t want to miss our Palm Sunday processional or the next performance of the HUUC children and youth.

  • “Look to This Day, for It Is Life”

    “Look to This Day, for It Is Life”

    Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this service

    As morning breaks on Easter Sunday, we look to a new day filled with new promise. We honor our history and our traditions, while grounding ourselves powerfully in the present moment – and in this one, beautiful day we have together. Our Universalist heritage teaches us that “all are saved,” that the love of God and the Universe includes and embraces everyone, eternally (“no exceptions”). Join us this Easter Sunday as we ponder the mystery and wonder of this day – of each day – and of this life we share. Our Choir will sing, our spirits will be lifted, and we might even see an Easter egg or two. Fancy Easter hats optional but welcomed!

  • “What is a Soul, Anyway?”

    “What is a Soul, Anyway?”

    Sunday, April 7, 2024, 10:30 am

    This service is led by Bob Lamb with Jen Ciolino

    Last year, Bob Lamb binged all seven seasons of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” (I don’t know why; ask him.) Buffy’s romantic relationship with a couple of vampires prompted Bob to want to explore the nature of this thing we call a “soul.” Come join Bob and his fellow explorer, Jen Ciolino, as they ponder what a soul actually is.

    Bob claims that, “Bob and Jen are both members of the Heritage Congregation who like to talk and they aren’t vampires.”  

  • “Let’s Have a Conversation”

    “Let’s Have a Conversation”

    Sunday, April 21, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this service.

    Is there something you’d like to talk about this morning? Do you have concerns (or kudos) about the church? Want to explore what’s going on in the wider world? Is there a joy or sorrow in your family or work life that is on your mind? This is the Sunday where the conversation goes in whatever direction you – the congregation – would like it to go. Come ready with a topic or topics, or just come ready to listen with an open heart.

  • “Looking Ahead”

    “Looking Ahead”

    Sunday, May 19, 2024, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this worship service.

    This congregation was founded in the spring of 1827. As we look ahead to the last three years of our second century of existence (what?!?), we can be thoughtful and intentional in our plans and our mission. What would we like to be able to celebrate when we gather for our big bicentennial party?
